Default Squeaky rear brakes?

Seems like my right rear brake or wheel is squeaking, same squeak happens when i set the emergency brake, but otherwise only when moving, not when applying the brakes. Lstumps me

Grab a can of brake cleaner and take the drum off. The squeak could be the shoe springs. And if it has been a while since the rear pads have been adjusted, that could explain the spring squeak.

no. it just slides off the studs but this is unlikely what it is.

drive in reverse at faster than normal backup speed and stand on the brakes. its how the shoes adjust. it sounds like you are JUST barely too loose on the adjusters.
